My husband had beef stew and I had liver and onions. The liver was very tender but one piece was cold for some reason. The beef stew was well cooked but a little dry. Normally a stew has liquid, but this was better than a stew that is so runny it goes everywhere. We shall go again as we did... More

Great real Ales and service. The staff were friendly and the plum ale smelt of prunes and tasted scrummy. Very very average roast dinner sadly as it looked delicious but rather have cooked my own which is nicer.....

One of our party had a mixed grill & reported that it was absolutely rubbish, cooked to death. All the meat really tough like shoe leather, chips had obviously been warmed up & for the price of £18.00 would have expected meal to be freshly cooked. Surroundings pleasant x nice ambiance

We stayed in the Byron room which was fine, if a little on the small side. When we were there we couldn't access wifi in the room or the bar. My wife's food was fine, although mine was not. The beers and ciders were fantastic and kept very well and it was no problem trying samples. Service was excellent and... More

My wife and I love this place. We try and get there at least once a year and have been going back about five years. Stayed here over the May Bank Holiday weekend this year and took some friends who have also fallen in love with it. Extremely dog friendly, you'll be tripping over them if you're not careful!

Stayed in the B&B part of the hotel for one night. It was clean, comfortable bed but no floor covering. Wouldn't be good in cold weather. The heater kept the room cosy. The evening was delicious. Good pub food with a touch of Pizzaz.

A group of us called last night, just for a social drink and a chat and we were really impressed. Great landlord and staff are really friendly. The beers are superb and the service was excellent. We didn't eat there but when we saw the food being served we wished we had. What a great pub and I will be... More

I have stopped overnight many times in the pub rooms & the excellent cottage. It really is great. I come with friends every year & changed this year to coincide with the beer festival in March which proved to be an excellent decision. We have a family weekend every August staying again in the cottage. Everyone staff & visitors are... More
